    37 years

I have been a lawyer for over twenty nine years.  I started practicing criminal defense in a small firm just south of San Francisco.  I was fortunate to secure a job in Los Angeles working as a deputy district attorney for the County of Los Angeles.  Ultimately I moved back to Boston, Massachusetts where I started my own law practice.  I am exclusively a criminal defense lawyer.  My practice spans the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts and I am frequently engaged to represent people accused of committing crimes in other states throughout the country. I have a substantial federal court criminal practice in Massachusetts. I have represented people in federal courts in many other states including New Hampshire, California, Illinois, Florida, Arizona and more. 


I am accessible by phone or email 24/7. I pride myself on getting back to clients as quickly as I can. I am available to meet nights and weekends. We also Skype and Facetime when asked by clients who are unable to meet in person but who also want a more personal form of contact. I truly believe that no criminal case is too big or too difficult for my office to defend.

The Best Criminal Defense Law Firm In Massachusetts No Question
When it seems like all odds are against you hire Steve. My case had mandatory time and the pressure means nothing to him because he's built for it. If you want the best possible outcome this is the law firm for you! Otherwise roll the dice with the second best.

Consummate professional with great generosity of spirit
I am from out of state and was trying to assist someone I thought needed legal counsel. Not only did Stephen respond immediately, he helped me figure out I was being set up for a scam. I would trust Stephen Neyman with any criminal matter, no matter how serious the charge. He is experienced and continually goes above and beyond for people in need.

The best lawyer
Hiring a lawyer for a defense has been one of the hardest decisions I've ever made. Since the first time I spoke to him on the telephone he gave me a lot of confidence, and he inmendiately started with the case. Now I know I made the best decision hiring Stephen neyman. He is a lawyer with much experience and I also witnessed how Stephen is respected by prosecutors and the good relations he maintains. Stephen was always sincere and clear with me, everything he told me was fulfilled and even at first he accomplished more than I expected. He resolved the situation successfully and my whole family has regained peace and tranquility. I will always be very grateful to him.

Don't know what I would've done without him
I could not have asked to come across a better person, let alone lawyer. Stephen helped me through one of the toughest times in my life, patiently, proactively and efficiently. I called on him at any hour of the day, most times panicking (lack of a better way to explain it) and he was always there, on time, or with words of wisdom, advice and sometimes just a joke to make me laugh - eased the stress of it all beautifully. I had never been involved in anything needing a lawyer and Stephen made the process less frightening, less terrible all together. He's recognized in a lot of court systems with a good rapport, which became evident as many people would approach and say "you're lucky you have him" - I was. If you're in a mess, like I was, have no idea what to do, how to do it, or what's going to happen to the rest of your life, and you want someone honest, hardworking, a friend during that time, Stephen's your guy! Thank you Stephen - in more ways than you know, you saved me.

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney--Highly recommended!!!
Steve Neyman is a talented criminal defense attorney with a strong reputation. My family hired Steve to help my brother with defending criminal charges. We found Steve online and we were impressed by his lengthy criminal defense experience, his reputation, and his reviews from both professional colleagues and clients. Once we met and spoke with Steve, we knew he was the right attorney for the case. Steve cares about his clients. This was clear from the start. As soon as we discussed my brother’s mental health history, Steve’s sympathy and knowledge were a tremendous additional asset. While my brother was on bail awaiting his trial, Steve kept both family and client informed—this is crucial when dealing with a client who suffers mental health problems. Most importantly, Steve’s presence seemed to dissipate tension and anxiety, which made discussions and communication much more effective. Steve’s lengthy experience handling criminal cases is invaluable to his clients. He is a skilled and talented attorney. On top of that, Steve’s reputation in court is stellar. I witnessed first hand that Steve is well respected, and perhaps even admired by prosecutors, clerks, and judges. On my brother’s case, Steve worked with two different prosecutors, and it was obvious that both prosecutors respected and listened to Steve. Thanks to his experience, talent and reputation, my brother got a favorable outcome. Although positive outcomes are never guaranteed, you can improve the odds tremendously by having the right attorney by your side. I highly recommend Attorney Steve Neyman!

After six months with my former attorney and getting no where, I hired Attorney Neyman
Attorney Neyman was attentive, caring, and professional in handling my case. He was very detailed and thorough. I was impressed that he was always available. Because of his expertise and experience with dui offenses, my case was dismissed.

Mr. Neyman Is Great!!
I had multiple charges that were basically going to ruin my career if they stuck. Mr. Neyman worked very hard to get me the best outcome. He knows his stuff and will fight for you all the way to the end, on top of being a great guy who keeps you comfortable the entire time. I highly recommend him!!

Attorney Neyman is the best of the best
I hired attorney Neyman to represent my father on multiple charges. My father was being held without bail and I needed a top notch lawyer to get this solved. Attorney Neyman was incredible. He was extraordinarily attentive to the case and my concerns. He was always available any time I wanted to talk to him and provided me with multiple roots of contact to enable this. He was well worth every dollar spent and my dad walked away from all this with a clean record and his freedom. I plan to hire Attorney Neyman for any and all future law needs. Highly recommend.
